 Results below

In front of a large crowd at Richmond Hutchins won through to the Grand Final in the Old Scholars with a nail biting win over Richmond in extra time in the Second Semi Final. With the final scores locked at 83 points each they played two five minute periods in which Hutchins kicked two goals one behind to Richmondís two behinds and won by 11 points. The game began with Richmond in control but Hutchins fought back to reduce the margin at half time to 27 points after Richmond kicked the first five goals of the game The second half belonged to Hutchins as they lifted their work rate but were wasteful at goal while Richmond tended to play too loose in defence. Michael Egan, Lewis Franks and Sam Palazollo were best for Hutchins while Jayden Baker, Nathan Woolley and Troy Hitchens were best for Richmond. 

DOSA advanced to the Preliminary Final with a 51point win over University in the First Semi Final. University jumped out of the blocks early but DOSA fought back and took control in the second half through Sam Peacock, Justin Harvey and Ben Setchell while Jake Stride, Trent Stevens and Cameron Burgess were best for University. 

In the Reserves Richmond won the second semi final to enter the Grand Final and DOSA were successful in the first semi final to contest the Preliminary Final next week.

Preliminary Final Day - North Hobart   Top of Page

A challenging start by DOSA, a typical Richmond fightback and a barnstorming finish by DOSA highlighted the Old Scholars Preliminary Final clash between Richmond and DOSA with DOSA earning the right to challenge Hutchins in next Saturdayís Grand Final. DOSA flew out of the blocks in the first quarter bombarding the goals but inaccuracy cost them a handy lead and Richmond added two late quarter goals to peg DOSA back. Richmond turned the game around in the second quarter kicking five goals to three to take a two point lead into half time.

The third quarter was a shootout as both teams tried to gain an advantage and the three quarter siren sounded with both teams locked on 83 points each. The final quarter belonged to DOSA who dominated around the packs and their defence stood tall while kicking five goals to Richmondís two to win by 20 points. Both teams had players who flashed in and out but none were as consistent as DOSAís Justin Veitch and Ben Setchell supported by Luke Manser, Mitch Broughton, Kim Harvey and Jeff Fisher while Trent Graham, Ben Cato, Jayden Baker, Adam Daft, Brad Joseph and Alex Cook were Richmondís best. 

In the Reserves  a six goal haul from Gerard Burke enabled St.Virgils to overcome DOSA and they will meet Richmond in the Grand Final.
